Three murders on three continents bear a horrifying resemblance: At
Princeton University, a famed geneticist dies inside a biohazard
lab. In Rome, a Vatican archaeologist is found dead in the heart of
St. Peter s Basilica. In Africa, a U.S. Senator s son is slain
within a Red Cross camp in Ghana. All three deaths are marked by a
fiery symbol burned into their flesh: a Druidic pagan cross. The
bizarre murders thrust Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force into a
global hunt for a powerful group of industrialists who have a
stranglehold on the world s food supply. Aided by two women from
his past, Gray flees a trio of high-tech assassins as he pieces
together the clues. The commander must make a brutal choice: to
save the world, he must sacrifice one of the two women at his side.
Yet even that price might not be enough, for he knows the only true
path to salvation lies within the Doomsday Key.
